Plaese note my issue is not wth Newegg but the refurbisher.

New egg service has been very fast as usual ; Laptop runs fine. Battery is very good

Packaging was scary but apears to have been adequate ; Unit was advertised with 2 Gig ram. I have received unit with only one Gig. Which measns it CANNOT function for the desired software

Everything seems to be as described and was a good value for my girls first lap top. Only odd thing is the key is not being accepted but the OS still works. But we are moving forwArd. Shipping was quick, everything is great.
